Default My Colt is in!

My Colt SP6940 just came in yesterday! It is a beautiful rifle, and I am very happy with my decision. This is my first AR and gun all together.

More pictures to come and after I shoot it I will give some more commentary.

Congratulations! Please post a range report when you get a chance to shoot that rascal.

You will love that stick!

I've had mine for 2+ years with not one issue.

It has eaten everything I've fed it from Wolf and Golden Bear steel to Hornady Match.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That is a sweet evil black gun. Congrats.

What did it set you back, if you don't mind my asking?

What a great AR!
